Dakota Johnson Online
Oct 2013

Dakota Johnson, daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, recently landed the highly coveted lead role in Universal’s adaptation of “Fifty Shades of Grey,” out next year, and her famous mother is opening up to “omg! Insider” for the first time about Dakota landing the coveted role.

When speaking with correspondent Keltie Knight at The Best in Drag Show benefiting Aid for AIDS on Sunday, the 56-year-old actress revealed that Dakota, 24, is not nervous at all to play Anastasia Steele.

“She is not the type to get scared,” Griffith told “omg! Insider” on the red carpet. “She has never been that way. When she was two she was not scared. So, she knows what shes doing and she’s really clear and really happy and it’s just it’s a joy to see her [right now].”

Given the popularity of “Fifty Shades of Grey,” the film is likely going to catapult Dakota into mainstream success. Although she’s had supporting roles in films including “21 Jump Street” and starred in the short-lived TV show “Ben and Kate,” the actress has yet to become a tabloid fixture. With notoriety surely around the corner, Dakota apparently only had one request to her famous mother.

“I mean it’s all very the only thing she said was, ‘Please just make me do the dishes when I go home. I want everything to stay really normal,'” Melanie revealed. “I mean, she’s really got her head on her shoulders. It’s really nice.”

So has Melanie seen her daughter start practicing for the role?

“No, no. Shes very mysterious,” Griffith replied. “It’s not like thats something she would do.”
